When a road was put in a few years ago that went past my woods, the soil was disturbed and seeds/spores that were dormant started growing. I now have several of thee ferns that will, given lots of time, become trees.

Wonderful. I wish I could grow them.

I can remember being in a fern forest in New Zealand many years ago, and it is fantastic.

I can only imagine. Are they fast growers ?

This is 2-1/2 years old.

I hate when my tree ferns grow like weeds!
I just found your pics. I look forward to seeing them all.
